Susie assumed her marriage to a handsome Park Avenue surgeon was great. So when Jonah is found murdered in the apartment of an 'escort', she is overwhelmed. With help from her tough-talking, high-style Grandma Ethel, Susie takes on her snooty in-laws, her husband's partners, the NYPD, and the DA as she tries to prove that her wonderful life with Jonah was no lie.
For a doctor in Intensive Care, intense emotion is part of the job. Fear in the eyes of a terminally ill patient who pleads with you to not let them die. Disgust at caring for a convicted rapist. But there are also moments of joy, like the rare bright spots of lucidity for a dementia patient, or when the ward unexpectedly breaks into song. Dr Aoife Abbey shows us what a doctor sees of humanity as it comes through the door of the hospital and takes us beyond a purely medical perspective. Told through seven emotions, Seven Signs of Life is about what it means to be alive and to care for a living.
